Close One

My husband and I purchased Hartz Guard Pro for our 11 month old cat, Poptart. She usually is very bubbly and snuggly. After applying the medication on her, she was very distant and didn’t want to be touched. She then started smacking her lips and salivating excessively and her skin became bright red. We tried wiping the medication off with a wet rag and called the Vet. The vet told us to bathe her immediately and to watch for worsening symptoms and seizures. After bathing her we did research online and came across this website. I am infuriated that a company continues to sell this product. I am saddened by the number of deaths this product has caused. Poptart is like my baby. She is a part of the family and would be devastated if anything happened to her. So now I will pull an all nighter to make sure she is ok. In the mean time sign my petition to try and get theses dangerous products removed from the stores or at least get them to change their “recipe”.

  1. I’m hoping for the best for Poptart. Look for her to eat, that’s very important. I would take her to the vet so she can get examined just as a precaution.

  2. Just so you are aware, the salivating & lip smacking can happen even with the very best flea drops on the market. It is a physical reaction brought on by the absolute bitterness of the product, should the cat accidentally lick some off herself somehow or get it on paws & lick it off. I’m not saying that Hartz products aren’t evil, because they MOST CERTAINLY ARE & should be banned; I am simply pointing this out so that if you try another medication on her and she has the lip smacking and salivating again, you won’t become alarmed. That part is normal if they ingest any of it. The extreme neurological distress, lethargy, & irritability of your animal and the other animals on this page are definitely NOT normal, however, and would likely require veterinary care.
